William Mallard is one of the finest men I have ever met. I don't always think the way he does, but I want an honest and good man like William in office. I hope to help get him elected Mayor.

I know that political affiliation does not have to be declared in a local political campaign but which of the above are Democrats and which are Republicans? If you don't know for sure, please don't post. I'm not trying to stir the pot. Honestly want to know.

Carson and Horner are die-hard Republicans. Young and Mallard are wishy washy.

Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who became a source of controversy during President Barack Obama’s first election campaign, was criticized by Tea Party conservatives after lambasting them in a speech on Monday in Wilmington, Delaware, the Wilmington News-Journal reported.

“We’ve got some unfinished business on the agenda, with one branch of the Tea Party being nothing but a 2.0 upgrade of a lynch party,” Wright said at an event honoring Martin Luther King Day.“We’ve got some unfinished business on the agenda, with some folks doing everything they can to get that Black man out of their White House.”

Tea Party conservatives denied Wright’s claims that any member of their organizations opposed President Barack Obama because of his race.

“I have been involved with the Tea Party since its inception here in Delaware and I have never once heard or seen anything at a Tea Party rally, 9-12 meeting or Patriot group event that was racist or ever even suggested that the president’s race has anything to do with the concerns raised,” former Christine O’Donnell campaign member Evan Queitsch told the News-Journal, while Theresa Garcia, executive director of the 9/12 Delaware Patriots, was quoted as saying,“If there was a white man in office with [Obama's] policies, we would dislike him.

In the speech, Wright also argued that there was still “unfinished business” from the Civil Rights Movement, with the country still facing the same “three-headed demon”— racism, capitalism and militarism — against which King marched.

“Tell your children we have some unfinished business on the agenda with the Voting Rights Bill gutted by a right-wing dominated Supreme Court,”“We’ve got some unfinished business on the
